International VDI Workshop - The Way from Digitalization with Advanced Analytics to APC – A Journey with Practical Examples

From Digitalization with Advanced Analytics to APC - Workshop

The VDI workshop “The way from digitalization with advanced analytics to APC” is based on the practical experiences gathered from over 1,200 ‘real world’ projects. With the knowledge from VDI’s Big Data Standardization Group and insights from McKinsey Project Management, a set of best practices has been developed, and this ‘gold standard’ will be explained in the workshop.

Overcoming Big Data challenges with best practice

In many ‘real world’ production scenarios, there is often insufficient information available to make the most of Big Data applications. Regardless of whether it comes down to missing or faulty sensors, incorrect sampling procedures or a lack of historical data management, this can impede success in optimizing processes.

Based on the experiences gathered from over 1,200 projects, this workshop will help participants apply the ‘gold standard’ we have identified through VDI’s Big Data Standardization Group and McKinsey Project Management. It starts with a readiness assessment and moves on to examples of how to connect old machines, collect laboratory analyses and batch process data and data from continuous processes with dominant time behavior.

These best practice workflows will use advanced analytics and modelling to show you how to achieve the best results and how to optimize processes online with APC 4.0.

The workshop “The way from digitalization with advanced analytics to APC” is part of VDI’s Big Data Conference. A special combination price is available to all participants booking both the conference and workshop. The workshop takes place the day before the conference.
